Defending National Champs 20 - Lucky Charms 10
If the Irish's vaunted and uberhyped front 7 can't hold our running game to under 4 ypc, add an extra 20 on Bama's side.
He doesn't have a broken foot. Unless someone is lying...
i see a defensive ball game here with plenty of FG attempts. my only concern is our pass coverage. i'll say 16-9 Bama
Good guys 31
Notre Dame 10
I'm torn between 20-10 and 24-10. Several others have recently guessed 24-10, so I guess I'll be contrarian and guess 24-10 as well. ;-)
I would be surprised if this is a blowout, and I could definitely see us getting behind at some point, but I'd much rather play ND than UGA, LSU, aTm, UF, OrU, and possibly Stanford, USCe, and KSU.
Lucky Irish -  = 4 FG's please, peace peace peace we say, all our gold for PEACE!
Crimson Tide -  = 2 TD's passing + 6 FG's + 1 Safety

23-13 Bama - if both teams play hard.
31-10 Bama - if we come out hot but sit on the lead.
27-21 ND - if they come out hot and stay that way.
45-10 - If we play to our full potential, and they play like they have a freshman QB.
I put so many because in this game both teams have had their great days and their not-so-great days on both sides of the ball. I believe its all going to come down to who will keep their mental focus positive no matter what situation the game throws at them. This is going to be a completely different game mentally for the players. I don't think we'll see the offense come out with the same type of strategy as last year's game. What o I think we'll do on offense? I have no clue specifically, but I do think it will be a more conservative type of game than the NCG last year. We'll see!
